    I never get off in East St. Louis, it gives me the willies just thinking about it. :)

    I'd be interested in knowing whether you snapped this one on your way past or whether you stopped and took the time to set it up. Either way it's very nice.

    Matttorontocanada- I stopped, got out of the car and took the photo. The person was already there - so I didn't have to do much but "snap" it.

    And Tojosan, it was pretty cold out & windy so there weren't many people outside hanging around - even still, I definitely want to go back and spend more time one day - it's a very interesting area to me!

    agree with you completely about the area -- completely fascinating. (and wonderful shot)

    Thanks, Tojosan (from long ago comment).
    And thanks, hedondidit - we've come to accept the fact that people in NYC rarely realize there's anything between them and California!

    Was up in Montreal a few weeks back and the only reason they know St. Louis exists is because our HQ is here. :)
